Hindsight: Speaking Truth To Power
Hold a credit card, buy a house, or take out a loan in her own name. Serve on a jury. Be pregnant and keep your job. Attend military academies and Ivy League schools. Refuse sex from husbands.

Hindsight: Regionalism, Race, And The Right To Vote
In 1915, the American humor magazine Puck , known for its political cartoons and satire, published a special edition, guest edited by New York State suffrage groups, in anticipation of the upcoming statewide referendum on women’s suffrage. The centerfold illustration, called “The Awakening” and drawn by Henry Mayer, depicts Lady Liberty, with the slogan "Votes for Women" emblazoned on her tunic, awakening the nation to women’s desire for suffrage, walking across the already-enfranchised American West, toward the East, where women were reaching up, clamoring to be saved by her. Printed just below Mayer’s illustration is a five-stanza poem by Alice Duer Miller. Less famous now, Miller was a popular poet and writer of the early 20th century who was part of Dorothy Parker’s famous Algonquin Round Table and often captured the mood of the movement with an irreverent quick wit and skill. Untitled, this poem is a call to arms for women across the nation to take up the cause of suffrage: Look

Origins: The 19th Century Woman's Movement
In 1920, the United States ratified the 19th Amendment recognizing women's voting rights. Over the next year, we will explore, commemorate, and celebrate the history of women's suffrage in the United States and discover what role voting played in the social, political, legal, and economic changes of the 20th and 21st centuries. This is Hindsight . - For historians, knowing where to start a story, where the real root of a movement begins is difficult to find but is critical to where the narrative goes. In the 1830s, white women lived under the protections of coverture, a legal doctrine that, upon marriage, covered women from legal and political responsibility in most cases. While this also place responsibilities on the husband for their well being, it meant a much more restricted public life for women, that, by the middle of the 19th century, was beginning to feel stifling. The women who began or organize for women's rights in the 1830s were responding to legal, political, and economic

Introducing Hindsight: Looking Back at 100 Years of Women's Suffrage
Seneca Falls. New York. July 1848. Wesleyan Chapel. Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Lucretia Mott. "A convention to discuss the social, civil, and religious condition and rights of woman." This brief description of the "world-shaking" event was sent to the local newspapers advertising the first women's right's convention. The convention lasted two days and took place over six sessions, offering presentations, lectures, and multiple discussions about the role of women in society. The result was a document that would serve as the foundation of women's rights in the United States and fuel a movement that would culminate in the ratification of the 19th Amendment, recognizing women's right to vote. But it's not actually the origin we think it is. KMUW 89.1-FM will debut a six-episode podcast series in March 2020 in recognition of 100 years of women’s suffrage. Hindsight: Looking Back at 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage examines the history of women’s suffrage, political involvement, and social
